Where were you, Jess?
Jessica Mauboy was supposed to sing the national anthem before the Melbourne Cup yesterday.
But just 30 seconds before she was meant to go on stage, organisers were scrambling to find a replacement after Mauboy reportedly pulled out.
Luckily Mauboy’s back up singer Nadia Aya took the stage instead with only 30 seconds to warm up.
Mauboy’s representatives reportedly offered a vague explanation that “clothing and preparation” was the reason she disappeared, adding that the 26-year-old singer was “incredibly sorry,” according to The Australian.
